LV Deneb Captain's Log
22nd August 2019
I hope everyone is doing well. Apologies for the delay.
We had a fabulous Weekend in Oxford City Regatta:
1x Open - Early Morning. Missed the win in his heat for 2/3 L. Fantastic race though, however I would never understand why the umpires don't warn you about the trees!
8+ made it into the Final where found a more experienced opposition and it was not to be.
Lunch Time Sprints - we lost against a young crew from University Utrecht
4+ - Our development crew noticed the effort of the morning but lost against the winner of the event.
1x - Good race but it was not to be, at the end 4L behind the winner of the event.
Saturday Night Fever: Pizza & Good Party in the Oxford City's Clubhouse 😉 - No pots but a lot of shots.
1x - Open Band 3. Early Morning - after 20 strokes, realised was not a good idea to be drinking shots the night before
1x - Open Band 2. After 20 strokes, realised was really not a good idea to have been drinking shots the night before
8+ - Good race but stronger opposition. 2.5 lengths behind at the end
Lunch Mix Sprints with BBL - Good Fun! We made into the semis - we need to enter more of these ones.
4+ Made it to the Final - against 4length Cantabrigian Rowing Club
4x Made it to the Final - fantastic race - 1/2 length behind at the end after 3 crabs and finishing like started with(in 😉) the trees.
